    Not sure when it will hit Aus, it is only just being recognised in the US.
    Treatments range in price UK $250/$350 per session
    Nose area is clearest it has been for around 10 years, a couple of tiny veins appearing but as long as I "top up" every 6 months or so I can keep them at bay.

    All in all, very happy

    Hey MD - since you get treated by Dr. Newman himself
    can you try to get him to do another US tour ?
    - I'll volunteer for a demo session in the Washington DC area

    Also how much does 1 treatment cost??

    So your nose is totally clear mirrordodga? No more veins at all?

    hi

    I am wondering if anyone knows whether veinwave works only for larger waves? I have some very fine veins under my eyes that I would love to get rid of. Laser genesis did not remove them, and IPL actually gave me more veins. Also, does veinwave remove only visible veins?

    Thanks much,
    Erika

I only had a couple places done but a full 15 minute (what I paid for) treatment would have been not fun.

    Too early to report on results. I still have pinpoint scabs spaced about 1 mm apart tracing the veins that they treated. They APPEAR to have disappeared completely in spots and improved greatly in others. Though I have been fooled before. I update in a couple of weeks.

    Overall all I'd say it was a worthwhile procedure thus far. I was not all bruised up like after VBeam and could comfortably live my life immediately after treatment. It has also seemed to affect veins that previously showed no results following MANY different and numerous laser treatments.
    Good for you Matt , you will need a couple more treatments to get where you want to be.

    I have had approx 6 treatments, and my nose area is more or less clear of veins ( that is where i wanted to be )

    Top up treatments every 8 months or so is all I will require going forward.

    Once again, good luck

    I have been researching this too and have been in contact with a practitioner in Los Angeles:

    Alexander Rivkin, MD
    1033 Gayley Ave., Ste. 104
    Los Angeles, CA 90024


    I also contacted veinwave inquiring about a practitioner on the east coast. They told me that "Dr David Glass has recently bought the Veinwave system and is based in New York.
    His email address is dvascsurg@aol.com."

    When I looked him up, it appears he is specialized in treating leg veins, so I never contacted him.

    I have decided to travel to London to see Dr. Newman. My condition got MUCH worse after receiving an aggressive IPL from at a cosmetic dermatology center. Despite meeting with a dermatologist at the center and being assured experience in rosacea and a mild treatment, my second treatment by an aesthetic technician at the center has left me with worsened flushing, increased sun and heat sensitivity, blotches, ocular issues (which I never had before), and vissible vessels that I never had before. So, I've decided that travel to England for veinwave would be the safest option at this point. Vbeam has definately helped some, but the visible vessels around my nose are not responding at all.

    Good luck! If you get treated in the US, I'd love to hear how it goes. Alyssa

    I had the hyfrecator (an electric needle) twice and I found the same thing. I also like to think I can take some pain. I have gotten 6 tattoos, a couple of which are very large and one took about 5 hours and they didn't hold a candle to the hyfrecator on the nose.
    I was kind of hoping the Veinwave wasn't quite as painful but like you said, "no pain, no gain".
    Thanks for the honesty (I guess).

    Hi Rob,
    Honesty is the best policy !!

    I like to think I have a high pain threshhold, but when that needle hits the sensitive part of my nose ( by the nasal folds ) man , that really makes my eyes water.

    Just letting you guys know what to expect should you proceed.

    But I called and set up a consultation for 2 weeks from now. I too am trying to get rid of stubborn veins on the sides of my nose that I just can't seem to get rid of. Think I will have them try it one or two veins to start to judge the reaction.

    Here is their website. Dr. Bomer performs the procedure.

    If anyone from the UK has any advice on what to look for in a good practioner let me know. Also, the websites say the results are immediate. Is this true? Do they disappear immediately and do not return? What was the down time like?
    Cpt Matt,

    I am from the UK, if you have a spare moment please look through my previous posts and you will find out all you need to know about Veinwave treatment.

    In summary- I have found it to be the best treatment to remove visible veins, and yes they do disappear immediately, however, the downside with this condition is you are always susceptible to new veins appearing, not necessarily in the same place as you have had the treatment. I have resigned myself to the fact that I will need top-up treatments every 8 months or so (indefinately ) I must say the new veins that do appear, are much smaller and less thicker than pre veinwave treatment.

    Expect to have small scabs/redness/soreness on the treatment site for about 5/7 days, then you will see the difference ( hopefully )

    The needle itself is uncomfortable when inserted into the skin, very much like a bee sting.

    No pain no gain !!

    Well- that depends on your definition of "microwave" and if you are marketing the machine or not.
    But yes, it is not that very different than the traditional hyfrecator http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyfrecator but it does appear to be an improved version.
    Some people have reported great success with it however.
